How they all are different? They are related to each other.

I agree with Vidya they are all related to each other.

The ans should be "D".

To: Vidya, Toto_Chang

You are all wrong.

A Football cannot be a Player or Field.
A Player cannot be a Field or Football.
A Field cannot be a Player or Football.

All are different. So the given answer is correct.

Note: The relation should be like the given below.

A man can be a player.
A human can be male.
Apple is a Fruit
A fruit can be an apple
... etc.

Yes Sundar said correct.

But then again in the previous question about lamp, wick and oil.

If we had framed it like a lamp can't be oil and oil can't be wick, that wouldn't make much sense. So I guess the correct option is B. Football has player and field but field and player are 2 different things.

Agree with Lipika.

Because what Sundar said was correct in his own perception.
There are ways to think like.

1. In football, there are players.
2. Football is not a player.

These are 2 different perceptions.
Kindly anyone guide that which perception to follow.

Thank.

Vidya, Sundar & Lipika all are correct in their ways.But still no right perception is there. One thing is clear that option 'A' & 'D' both are incorrect Ans. But my heart saying option 'B' is better correct than the option 'C'.

This is maths, so yes, there is one correct answer, that's the special thing about maths. The previous question throw you off, as they say its related because both things are used for an oil lamp, so one would automatically acknowledge how there are players in football,and football is played in a field.

So Ans D) is a possibly, but if you think about doesn't Ans A) seem more suited as not all players play on the field or play football, but football and field are linked, but this does not mean that football is the only field sport (rugby, soccer,field hockey,etc).

So this is the final analysis, Football is the inner circle, Field is the outer circle that surrounds the inner circle, and the players are the multiple intersection circle.
